    Can busses carrying student groups do drop offs without paying for parking?

    Hi Diana!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm delighted to let you know that drop off is allowed without within the parking lots, it just differs slightly for the various parks within Walt Disney World.

    For Magic Kingdom, there is no drop off directly near the main entrance so you will want to proceed to the Transportation and Ticket Center. Once your group is dropped off here they can take either the monorail or Disney Water Transportation  over to the park. 

    For Epcot, Disney's Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios, the bus should follow directions to the respective park and you will see signage for the drop off areas. If for some reason the signage is not clear, let the Cast Member at the parking booth know that your students are being dropped off and the bus is not staying on property. They will be able to point you in the right direction.

    I hope you and your students have a wonderful trip!
